- My husband and I launched the very first home-based event manager franchise concept in Berkshire back in November 2009.
- Over the years our 11-year-old son has gained so much from us running the events along with us saving a fortune on toys, clothes, and equipment.
- So much has happened since we started our first Baby & Children’s Market in Berkshire which seems a long time ago now.
- In the past 10 years, we have seen it grown beyond our expectations with the help of our fantastic team of franchisees. A lot has been learned along the way and a lot of fun has been had expanding our business across the UK.
Our mission and passions are to:
- Provide the parental community with a regular pop-up market to buy and sell on quality nearly new children’s items from birth to 8 years all under one roof.
- Help the local parental community make and save money for their growing families. Provide the community with a friendly, well-organized and professional service.
- Give the environment a helping hand by encouraging families to reduce waste by recycling their pre-loved and unused children’s items.
- Now in 2020, we are currently operating Baby & Children’s Market nearly new sales in over 600 towns from the North to the South of the UK. This is thanks to our dedicated and hard-working team of work-from-home event managers (Mums & Dads) that have helped us expand across the country over the past 10 years.
- We gain a lot of enjoyment putting on our markets that have such a great community feel. It’s helping the parental community save a fortune on children’s items plus encourages recycling at the same time.
- Event Managers will be required to source out a suitable venue, advertise extensively to ensure you gain stall bookings and good attendance in the local area and run the market on the day.
- We will guide you through the process every step of the way by setting up your own work-from-home event managers’ children’s business. From sourcing & booking a venue to marketing the event and running it on the day with clear step by step instructions.
- A large percentage of your time is taken up in marketing the event using various forms of advertising.
- The majority of our advertising is done online and can easily be done during the evenings after the children have gone to bed, during school time or nap time.
- This involves listing your event on various websites, building up a fan base on your county Facebook and Twitter page along with posting on parenting forums, etc. We will provide you with a list of suggested sites to start you off while you build up your own local contacts.
The key role in running events:
- Finding suitable venues
- Processing stall bookings / invoicing sellers
- Promote and advertise events using various forms of advertising tools that have proven successful.
- Building relationships with local baby & children’s businesses in your area and nationally.
- Gaining advertising and sponsorship opportunities through local businesses that will increase your income.
- Manage and run a successful event on the market day.
- The good thing about taking on a business opportunity such as this is that you can work with your family’s needs, creating that work/life balance. You choose the hours that suit you and your family.
